What I did this week:

Writing up detailed documents of how nmap works, from a system level
as well as from a program level.  Will continue updating these
documents with more information as I learn it.   Learning a lot and
trying to capture what I am learning to make it easier for others to
learn nmap programming moving forward.

I put the code into Linux Cross Reference for myself to make it easy
